Diamond Island Development Co Ltd, owned by Canadia Bank, yesterday bought a 15 per cent stake in Investment and Development Company of Cambodia (IDCC)’s Cambodia-Vietnam Insurance Plc.

Ou Sophanarith, CEO at Canadia Bank, declined to provide information on the deal but confirmed the possibility of buying more shares in the future.

Canadia Bank chairman Pung Kheav Se and IDCC’s CEO Nguyen Dinh Duong could not be reached by the Post for comment yesterday.
